. >> president obama took a moment to acknowledge law the suspect in massachusetts. he says there are a lot of unanswered questions. including why the brothers who grew up and studied in the u-s would resort to such violence. >> what ever hateful agenda drove these men to these attacks. whatever they thought they would achieve they have already failed. they have failed because the people of boston refused to be intimidated. americans refused to be terrorized. they failed because we're not going to waver from the character. and the compassion and the values that define this country. >> the family of the wife of the older brother, tamerlan tsarnayev, released this statement friday. quote, " we cannot begin to comprehend how this horrible tragedy occurred." in the aftermath of the patriot's day horror, we know that we never really knew tamerlan sar-na-ev. it goes on to say that, "our hearts are sickened by the knowledge of the horror he has inflicted." the family has asked for privacy at this time. >> the eleven- year-old martinez boy who was injured in the boston bombings, aaron hern is stead

in the drone attack. the legalization if you're an american and overseas and participating -- >> the obama administration has used this legal argument to justify their drone attacks. it's not unfamiliar to them. >> about a year ago or so, the nypd came under fire for some listening in this -- using surveillance techniques on certain groups. >> in new jersey. >> in new jersey. >> right. >> there was a thing going back and forth between new york, new jersey, whether they were allowed to do this or not. with all this going on, aren't we making the case for more of that rather than less of that? >> yeah, we have to do more of it. it's very uncomfortable. it's very -- none of us want to give up any of our privacy, understandable. the reality is this is how you stop them. this is the only way you have to stop them. that is getting the information in advance. they're doing everything they can to hide what they're doing. law enforcement, intelligence agencies, they have to be able to do everything they can to intrude into them to find out what they're doing. >> mayor, as far as i can tell, we knew

. president obama also noted the time at the white house as did traders on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nbc news justice correspondent pete williams has the very latest. >> at 2:38 last monday afternoon, 11 minutes before the first bomb goes off the fbi says, a surveillance camera catches dzhokhar tsarnaev and tamerlan tsarnaev walking towards the finish line with backpacks, a second and crucial piece of video, the fbi says, comes from a surveillance camera mounted on this restaurant. at 2:42, court documents say the still unreleased video shows dzhokhar tsarnaev with a backpack walked towards the scene of a second bombing. at 2:45, he slips his backpack off. still photos show the backpack on the ground at his feet. when the first bomb goes off, the fbi says, the video shows the crowd looking towards the finish line in alarm. but the fbi says tsarnaev virtually alone among the individuals in front of the strauvent appears calm. he walks away, it says, without his backpack, and ten seconds later, the second bomb goes off in the spot where he left the backpack. the fbi says both

. relieved citizens cheered in the streets. amazing sight. president obama appeared in the white house briefing room shortly after 10:00 p.m. to say thank goodness its over. certainly capturing the mood not only here in watertown but across this region. matt and savannah, back to you. >> where does this investigation go from here? nbc's justice correspondent pete williams has been working this story tirelessly around the clock. pete, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. the justice department says it intends to put dzhokhar tsarnaev on trial in a regular civilian court using the rules that apply in any criminal trial and that's renewing a debate about how to try terrorists on american soil. as soon as he is physically ready, dzhokhar tsarnaev will be subjected to questioning by federal authorities but in the beginning he will not be given the usual miranda warning about the right to remain silent. instead, the government will invoke a rule that allows questioning a suspect without giving advice of rights. >> there is a public safety exemption in cases of national security and po
. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> reporter: fox news is told investigators are probing a potential link to a islamist group as first reported on fox over the weekend. they were responsible for the attack on moscow airport. in response the group issued a statement saying their disagreement is with russia. they did not deny knowing the brothers. also according to one source who has reviewed that, they were undercut in their claims trying to deny any connection because they pointed the finger as russia as being responsible for these bombings which of course there is no evidence to support that, jon. jon: catherine herridge, lots of tangled leads to unravel here. catherine, thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jenna: for more on this now we'll bring in our next guest, chris voss, retired fbi special agent and hostage negotiator and manager of insight security. we talked you to last few times in. great to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna. jenna: catherine is reporting on there
the nra. >> that's my only f-minus ever. >> you earned it. here was president obama's angry reaction wednesday after the bill, the gun bill was voted down in the senate. >> the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill. they claimed it would create some sort of big brother gun registry even though the bill did the opposite. so all in all, this was a pretty shameful day for washington. >> after this week and the vote in the senate, gun control wasn't going anywhere, but does this sense -- this was a big event for america -- the sense of increased anxiety about your personal safety, does that make gun control an even steeper climb? >> i don't know how much steeper it could be. let's understand, this bill was just about background checks, closing the gun show loophole, something the nra used to support. it was really not about reducing the number of guns that people already own or the kinds that they can own or anything like that. so i think what happened was, sadly, this took attention away, diluted the momentum for this bill. attention was paid elsewhere, and then it lost
magazine unleased its 100 most influential people list of all time and president obama is on for the fourth time mischel obama, and kim junk un lindsey vonn make the list but her boyfriend, tiger woods did not. chris christie is on that too by the way. >> bill: all right. thank you, dan. what an extraordinary weekend. the lockdown was announced during the show, and we were sure that by the end of the show, that would have him, right? because they had that horrible crime scene thursday night when they thought they had robbed the 7-eleven. it turned out they didn't rob the 7-eleven but they were there at the time. and then they shot and killed senselessly it seems this officer. they hijack the car take off with this guy, go from atm to atm, big up $800, thrown him out of the car. he very cleverly -- i give him credit for doing it appropriately -- left his cell phone in the car so the police were able to track his car to watertown, one brother is killed, and the other brother goes on the lam. and that's when thigh lockdown the city. it went on and on
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
these two men. president obama watched the whole thing unfold on television and got a abbreviating from national security staffers. he says it brings a chapter to a close but they deserve the motive in one of the most horrifying terror attacks in the nation's history. >> reporter: good to see you. a sense of relief as you can see from the pictures and sound from boston and also here at the white house what has been a long week at the white house but also west, texas going through an horrific situation. when the president came into the briefing room he noted that, as well. people dealing with tremendous grief in west, texas. he was following all the riveting moments on television and then he got a briefing officially informing him that the second suspect had been taken into custody alive. he got a phone call from robert mueller informing him about the details and the president talked about the nation coming together. take a listen. >> boston police and state police and local police across the commonwealth of massachusetts responded with professionalism and bravery over five long days. to
it this, but i feel like i should ask anyway, one of the things that obama administration did shortly after taking over from the bush administration is that president obama established an elite high value target special interrogation team. which he said that he would use for any high value terrorism targets that would be sort of the state of the art a-team on interrogations. this is a federal case. this guy is in fbi custody. is this the sort of case in which the president's a team on interrogation would be called in or would this be handled by your standard professional fbi interrogation team? >> i would say the high value target team would be in boston already and they want it interview this guy. these are u.s. citizens. and whatever the protocol that that high value team developed, is going to have to come into play. you remember, this guy came to the u.s. when he was 8 years old. he is a u.s. citizen. all of his rights are afforded but i would say that team is there. and if they are not the ones doing the interview, they are standing outside the door talking to the agent who are d
obama. he spoke at the interfaith service yesterday. he is talking to one of the men involved with the marathon, matt. he told him that he will run again. some of the people off the limbs -- lsot limbs. does that give you hope or inspiration? caller: of course. the human spirit is here to stay, but we have a lot of problems to work out. we have to start raising our children right. host: you can see more images from yesterday's interfaith service. the mayor of boston, the governor of massachusetts, and others were there at yesterday's service. bernard in washington, d.c., independent caller. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. it's my first time. washington and maryland should be able to have a gun. there's a good opportunity you may be able to take out one person. host: explain what you mean by ccw. caller: that is a concealed carry permit. there's a chance maybe a terrorist or someone could take out one person in the neighborhood. but to be able to take out a neighbo -- out a whole neighborhood where everybody is armed, it would never happen in this country. host
obamas said it was a shameful day for the senate. i agree it probably was. make no mistake this debate is not over. in fact the fight is just beginning. >> the decision to delay the vote on pending legislation leaves the door open for it to be reintroduced at a later date. >> will take a break. 423 as we go. bring you up to speed on the latest of boston. we have pictures of two suspects police say were spots will for the bombings. the suspect on the left who has not yet been identified was killed on a police shootout early this morning. the suspect on the ride has been identified a. >> the to our brothers. they hail from region of russia near chechnya the little we know so far will let you know when we find out more. will be back with our latest coverage of the boston manhunt that sis under way with a second suspect. >> we are back. >> and as of police officers are calling the streets of backyards and alleys looking for the second suspect in the boston marathon bombings. there were too. they led police on a chase overnight. then exchanged gunfire there was a shootout with officers. th
. if you look at the obama administration they tried to have a reset relation with russia. that's not how it works. it has been an absolute disaster . every time putin and obama meet putin scolds obama. here might be an opportunity to say look you don't like the chechens? is there anyway we can work together to deal with international terrorism. you may not have been worried about them before this, but you have just as much of a problem with all of the countries on your periphery that are potentially becoming radical islamic states of the -- states. is there a way to work together maybe on this one thing and then it can lead to cooperation on other things? ultimately we would love their cooperation on iran and the nuclear program, but maybe we can take these baby steps to say let's start sharing intelligence. how do you see this threat evolving? maybe we can work on that. >> do you think it was the russians that two years ago tipped off the fbi that lead them to interview literally the older 26-year-old brother? >> maybe. maybe there was kazakstan. there were a lot of other countries wher

is to kill them overseas before they get here. i think president obama has been doing a pretty good job of that in the past few years. immigration is a very complex issue. that is my basic take on that. the: colonel larsen, one of earlier caller talked about the family of the suspect. the ap said it talk to the father of the two young men. the father of the suspects in the boston marathon bombing said his son on a list is a smart and accomplished young man. smart on the loose is a and accomplished young man. that is from the associated press, who reached the father of the two suspects in russia. call is from it in maryland. would like to i thank the colonel for his service. i wanted to ask the -- asking a question concerning terrorism and its definition. i believe political terrorism, of course, is widely known and accepted. but there is also secular terrorism, as shown in bosnia, alsoxample, and probably institutionalized care as we experienced in nazi germany and bosnia recently. i would like your comments on that. guest: i have been doing some work with survivors of the siege and the
